The Detroit Lions weren’t at their best during Sunday’s loss against the Indianapolis Colts at Ford Field. In fact, they were downright poor.
Their defense was carved up like a Thanksgiving turkey by the Indianapolis offense, which put 41 points on the board en route to their 5th win of 2020, while sending the Lions back below the .500 mark at 3-4.
Defensive coordinator Cory Undlin was asked about his team’s poor defensive showing this past weekend, which included not one but two incidents in which the team only had ten players on the field.
Undlin didn’t mince words.
“That’s bad coaching. That’s what that is,” he said.
Detroit’s offense didn’t fare much better than their defense, putting up a mere 80 yards in the first half.
They’ll have a chance to even up their record this weekend when they pay a visit to the Twin Cities for a matchup against the division rival Minnesota Vikings.
New Detroit Lions DE Everson Griffen ready for debut
The Detroit Lions pulled off a deal last week, acquiring Everson Griffen from the Dallas Cowboys to help shore up their defensive unit.
Almost immediately after the trade, Griffen took to social media to express his excitement over heading to the Motor City and promising to be a “motherf****in dog ready to eat.”
And while he wasn’t able to make his Lions debut during Sunday’s setback against the Indianapolis Colts, he’s looking forward to doing so this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings. And he’s certainly fired up.
Griffen took to social media to once again share his thoughts, with a bit of a more philosophical approach this time:
He’s getting ready to participate in his first practice this week after clearing the COVID-19 testing process. And after having played in 154 career games since 2010, it’s safe to say that Griffen is indeed one of the “real” ones.
